    One thought on “Little Red Ruthie: A Hanukkah Tale”

    1. A Chanukah story and a fairy tale? Sign me up!I picked this up at they synagogue I teach at when they were doing a book fair to support the preschool (along with several other non-Jewish fairytale adaptations for later…)As a teaching book about Chanukah, there’s not a lot to recommend it. The Chanukah story of the Maccabees is only alluded to. The oil miracle gets a page or so of text. The focus here is on latkes. And who doesn’t like latkes? It’s definitely a fun read among the many ava [...]

    2. I'm not usually big on revised folk tales, unless they add something interesting to the story. In this case, the author did just that. Not only is this version of "Little Red" more than a brainless victim, she and her grandmother both display a personality. The wolf has a personality, too, which comes out in the strangest moments, but is actually quite funny.All that plus a latke recipe and a simplified story of why a food fried in oil is part of the Hanukkah traditionry good variation on the ol [...]

    3. Loved the illustrations. Really related to this one and how clever Ruthie was and loved how the wolf couldn't read so it made sense for him to just go on in (and be bored and try on the clothes while he waited! haha). Loved how the violence wasn't necessary in this one and the Hanukkah story is woven throughout (though would have like the explanation of the bravery of the Maccabees a bit sooner).

    4. I'm not a huge fan of the Little Red Riding Hood story, but this is a cute twist on the fairy tale that's more funny than scary. Red is transformed into a quick-thinking girl who fills the hungry wolf up with latkes before sending him on his way.Vegan parents note: There is a latke recipe in the back which contains eggs, but egg substitutes are pretty easy to find--and there are lots of yummy egg-free latke recipes on the net.

    5. "Ruthie is brave. I like her coat. Her grandma is nice too. I want to make latkes with my mommy."- V, age 4[We read this book five times before returning it to the library at my preschooler's request. It is a nice version of the fairytale. And the recipe for latkes is provided at the end of the book.]

    6. Only reason this is a 4.5 is I want to know what the jelly doughnut is for at the end (is it a traditional Hanukkah treat or a special one for Ruthie's family)! Plus, would like to have seen a little more description about Hanukkah as it is very geared towards those of the faith. Which is fine, but would like to have seen a slightly broader audience for it. LOVE the illustrations.

    7. Super cute version of Little Red Riding Hood with a Hanukkah twist. (And let's face it, we've all felt like the wolf at the end after eating too many latkes!)
